Koshinohomare Shiboritate Junmai Nama Genshu SE02 "Pride of Niigata"

Four Hot Words: Full-Bodied, Dry, Smooth, & Food-friendly

The nose on this super-fresh just-released unpasteurized sake is a clever collection of pear, mango, papaya, cream, and powdered sugar aromas. This sake screams “Hey You Sake Drinker, It’s Nama Time!” Talk about a chewy and fat sake that drinks like liquid texture. This brew is all things Spring from chewy and gooey to lush and tingly with an active acidity of 1.9. With a semi-sweetness that drinks more rich than sweet. Has an alcohol content of 18% this “Genshu” is a wonderful dance partner in your glass with creamy moves of honey, pear, mango, and gentle rice tones from the Gohyakumangoku milled to 65%. This is a feeling brew that excels in the palate, and is perfect for those who like bigger bolder wines with a touch of sweetness. A small cup makes for more fruitiness and a larger glass moves the acidity to a more balanced level.

The nose on this unpasteurized and undiluted (18%) spring released sake is a unique collection of rice candy, banana, strawberry, and mineral aromas. Semi-sweet and sunny, a perfect picnic sake that is bright and happiness in a glass. A very soft and smooth brew with a fluffy texture and lots of honey tones. Look for honeycomb, honey tea, and honey candy flavors that drink juicy and bright and leaves longs legs on the glass. Rich and full-bodied fun that is released in the spring to bring out a freshness and brashness of raw and living sake. A really good “feeling” sake that speaks to those who like candy licks and sweet rice tricks. A sake with a lot of weight to it!
